I was given a support device post transplant by my amazing nurse team. It was a bedsheet folded up and secured with surgical tape.

Just used it to give support when getting in and out of bed. Best bit about it was that it was recycled and I hope reused for many more recipients ;-)
Now 35 with Alports and I had my first kidney-versary 18th feb 2013....I hope to have many more.

My living donor and his family are doing all well.
